- IIIF Manifest:
Born in Britain, of Indian Caribbean descent, Roshini Kempadoo is a photographic and digital artist whose work engages with ways in which historical material can be reworked and re-contextualized to explore the relationship between physical landscapes, spaces and sites, and those who owned and occupied them. Kempadoo spent ten years in the Caribbean, a deeply formative time, and her particular interest lies in the exploration of the history of Trinidad, a former British colonial possession, between 1838 and 1948. This haunting and resonant image, which was commissioned by the Center, derives from Ghosting, a screen-based interactive installation commissioned for Leicester City Art Gallery, England, in 2004. Through spoken word and animated landscape the installation reflects on Trinidad's history of migration, slavery, and indentured service, speaking to the life stories of the disaporic populations of Trinidad.
